Ups Teamsters' Stake

— NPR's Jim Zarroli reports on the latest in the Teamsters Union strike against United Parcel Service. At the request of the Clinton Administration, the two sides will meet today...but there's still no resolution in sight for the 11-day-old strike. U-P-S is losing an estimated 35 million dollars for every day of the strike, but the company has plenty of cash and credit to ride out the work stoppage. But the strike could be costing the company valuable market share in the package delivery business.
